The global biometrics-as-a-service market size reached US$ 1.4 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.8 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 18.87% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Biometrics-as-a-service (BaaS) refers to a cloud-based application that identifies and authenticates individuals using their biological and behavioral characteristics. It is based on biometrics technology that records the user’s presence through a highly accurate eye, voice and facial recognition. This enables advanced, enterprise-wide biometric identification, which aids in enhancing the security of the existing organizational infrastructure. In comparison to the traditionally used paper- and pin-based authentication systems, BaaS systems are highly scalable, cost- and time-effective and less prone to fraudulent activities. Modern BaaS solutions can be deployed for site and mobile access control, time recording and web and workspace management.

Biometrics-as-a-Service Market Trends:
The growing need for comprehensive authentication systems, along with the increasing adoption of cloud-based services by enterprises across the globe, is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Both government and private organizations are adopting advanced BaaS solutions to counter security attacks and identity thefts. Furthermore, widespread adoption of these solutions in the banking, healthcare and retail sectors is providing a boost to the market growth. For instance, banking service providers are offering mobile-based applications for virtual transactions and digital wallets, which are highly sensitive and can only be accessed through advanced authentication systems, such as fingerprint scanning and facial or voice recognition. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the integration of BaaS with smartphones, tablets and laptops, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. This aids in conducting business transactions through multi-device and location-independent environments. Other factors, including rapid urbanization, coupled with the implementation of favorable government initiatives to enhance national security, are expected to drive the market further.
